THE RISE OF SKYWALKER? ” I have no F***ing Idea,” Says Harrison Ford

One of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker‘s most memorable moments came when Harrison Ford returned as Han Solo for an emotional reunion with his son. Talking to USA Today, the actor was asked what led to that and shed some light on his conversations with director J.J. Abrams. 

“When JJ asked me to do it, I said, ‘Are you kidding? I’m dead!'” he recalls. “He said, ‘Sorta dead. You can do this.’ He hadn’t written anything at that time. But he said, ‘This is going to be great.’ So I said okay. If JJ asked you do something, you’d probably do it too. He’s a very persuasive guy.”


“It was a useful addition to the story and the continuing development of Adam Driver’s character,” Ford adds. “And the chance to do another scene with Adam was great.”


Of course, there’s been a lot of speculation about whether Solo was a Force Ghost or just a mental projection in Kylo Ren’s head, but – and this probably won’t surprise you – Ford doesn’t know or care either way! “A Force ghost? I don’t know what a Force ghost is,” he admitted. “Don’t tell anyone. I’m not talking loud enough for your recorder. I have no f***ing idea what a Force ghost is.”

“And I don’t care!”

Well, that sounds about right. Ford has never really expressed much interest in the character and didn’t really seem to want to reprise the role back in 2015’s The Force Awakens unless Solo was going to be killed off once and for all. There’s no denying that what he says here is pretty hilarious, though!

“Rey lays on the stone slab still injured. Light fills up the space around her. Particles of energy floating up. She rises with the energy. The light engulfs the frame until we reach a place beyond what we know. The Astral Plane. Yoda, Luke, and Obi Wan appear before her. Rey: “Is this death?” Obi-Wan: “In this place, there is no such thing as death.” Yoda reveals Rey succeeded were they failed. Luke: “You choose to embrace the dark side and the light. To find the balance within.”

They offer Rey a choice to stay in the comfort of the Astral Plane or to return to the living where she will experience both love/loss. The spirits fade. Obi-Wan: “You are a Jedi, Rey Solana, but you will not be the last.”
